Chocolate Sauce

This is the most badass chocolate sauce ever. It’s simple, keeps for a week or two in the fridge, and goes with almost any dessert. You can even make a milk shake with it. For extra-bitter chocolate sauce, use a higher percentage cacao chocolate, such as 65% Manjari from Valrhona.

      Put the cocoa powder in a large heatproof bowl and whisk in about ½ cup (120ml) of the hot sugar syrup to make a smooth paste. Whisk in the remaining sugar syrup until smooth. For a supersilky texture, strain through a fine-mesh sieve.
